MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) -Philippines Vice President Leni Robredo has fired her team of political advisers after a harrowing experience during a sparsely-attended Opposition campaign rally in Hong Kong.
She flew to Hong Kong over the weekend to campaign for the senatorial bets running under the Otso Diretso coalition.
Several videos surfaced on social media showing Robredo being met with shouts of “Duterte! Duterte!” The videos showed the VP remaining inside her van to avoid the angry mob.
“Nakakabahala,” Robredo told The Adobo Chronicles, after announcing that she had cut ties with her political advisers.
”They told me I would be speaking before hundreds of thousands of adoring OFWs in Hong Kong. It turned out there was at most, a hundred.”
Robredo is now busy putting together a new team of advisers in preparation for a planned trip to the Middle East. Part of her plan is to bring several planeloads of supporters from Manila and Naga to ensure that her personal appearance in U.A.E. will not suffer the same fate as her Hong Kong trip.
